Forgot to ask.

Does anyone know if Tamiya belts from a 416/417 fit the Zero or not?
The reason I'd like to know is that the Zero belts are very thick when they are new, and are alot stiffer which is noticeable when they bend around the small pulley's.
This is more evident on the rear belt and adds a degree of friction/resistance to the rear center & diff pulley, which is not good when using a 21.5 motor in blinky class. In the aforementioned class, any friction/resistance that can be removed can make a big difference in both acceleration & top end speed of the car. I have noticed that the Tamiya belts are less "chunky" and are more flexible so I'm curious to see if they will fit the Zero.

Cheers
Rob.

Is it safe to run my sakura s with two teeth missing from the spur gear? And what gearing do you think is good Gearing for using the castle creations sv2 w the 6900kv 4 pole motor?

Generally No they will all strip out very shortly.

Anyone else find the diffs are not smooth. Anyone have a technique to free them up a bit?

I find that over tightening is the biggest problem with these diffs. I have just rebuilt mine with 300K in the front and 80wt in the rear and If I just lightly snug up the screws it's perfect and no leaking

Why? Because the missing teeth or this is the norm for the stock gear in this kit?

No the missing teeth will put more stress of the other teeth in the area and the stock spur gear is not that strong to begin with. I find that if ones goes the rest go very quickly

Thanks, I guess I had it too tight.
Working smooth now, just hope it don't leak.

Firstly laying shocks over too far can have the opposite effect you wanted so bring the rear shocks back to hole 2 or 3, get softer rear springs 6.0, thicker shock oil in front than rear try 40f 35r, but you really need to tell us whether its loose on or off power

its loose on power... while imholding the throttle
and as far as the thicker oil in the front.. the shock oil that came with the kit seems to be thicker than the 30 im using now.. would it be a good idea to use that?(for the front
